Some Ingredients and Craft Supplies Needed
All purpose Flour
Large Mixing Bowl
Straw (to make a hole to hang)
Measuring Cup (1 cup)
Paint (red, white & skin color)
Paint Brushes (shocking huh?)
Ribbon and I bought little bows
Black Sharpie Marker
Some use Modpodge I used -
Crystal Clear Acrylic Coating
Preheat your oven at 250 Degrees
Then Combine your ingredients in a large bowl
2 cups flour
1 cup salt
1 cup nukwarm water
knead the dough together with your hands
until it is completely mixed.
Section off your dough and roll into little balls.
I did a ball that was about 2 inches in thickness
then used a cylinder glass to roll the dough into
little patties about 3/4 of an inch in thickness.
Press your childs hand into the dough.
Simple right? Hahahaha
Brayden LOVED this part.
*sarcasm* Good Luck to you all.
Cut the outline of the handprints with a sharp knife and remove the extra dough.
Then use the straw to make a hole that will be used to hang the ornament later on.
Bake in the oven at 250 for 2 hours!
I then proceeded to let my dry out over night too.
PHASE TWO: HOW CRAFTY ARE YOU?
Supplies I used
Paint White & let it dry.
I did not paint the back side
only the front and sides.
Paint on details.
The easiest way to do this is to go by the photos
and stay in line with the handprint.
Spray on Crystal Clear Acrylic
IMPORTANT NOTE: Spray at least 12 inches away from
the ornament itself. I lost a santa from the spray running my
paint. At least I learned my lesson and only lost one!
Put your ribbon through the hole to hang ornaments.
I added bows to make mine a tad cuter.
Not bad for my first Salt Dough Ornaments!
You can use a sharpie to add a cute note
and the year that way you will always remember.
Hope you all enjoyed reading and I'd love to see all your
